Sussex County Traffic Attorney

Sussex Courthouse

Sussex County has become notorious for the enforcement for many Code of Virginia traffic violations specifically reckless driving and speeding. Mattox Law is your choice for quality traffic ticket representation in Sussex.  If you have received one of these violations, please contact Sussex County traffic attorney Trey Mattox immediately.

Sussex has become notorious for their enforcement of traffic violations primarily along U.S Route 460 and Interstate 95.  Moreover, this reputation stems in large part from the town of Waverly, which travels through the county of Sussex. When Route 460 enters Waverly the speed limit is 55, but the limit quickly drops to 45 and shortly thereafter to 35 miles per hour. Of course, this all occurs in a very brief distance. Frequently, our clients simply miss a sign and find themselves traveling much farther over the limit than intended. 

In addition to Waverly, Mattox Law represents clients who receive traffic infractions and crimes throughout Sussex County including Homeville, Wakefield, Yale, Stoney Creek, Grizzard and Capron.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving violations are very serious charges in Virginia. As a result, a conviction carries penalties like fines, license suspension, and class 1 misdemeanor.  Moreover, these consequences can have very long lasting effects. Additionally, this can burden even the most proactive motorist.


Many drivers have exceeded posted speed limits during their driving history. However, speeding ticket charges in Virginia can vary significantly depending on the nature of the offense.  Certainly, more extreme cases are charged as reckless driving by speed, which is a class 1 misdemeanor.  Admittedly, speeding is an infraction rather than a misdemeanor. Even so, a conviction can still carry very serious and lasting consequences including:

  • license suspension
  • points on your driving record
  • high fines
  • increased insurance rates


Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious traffic violation in Virginia. Consequently, a DUI conviction has long lasting consequences. Additionally, it is often a complicated path to trial that can be confusing. More, this process is very stressful for individuals facing these charges. Importantly, an experienced Virginia DUI attorney will help minimize the chance of negative outcome.
